Moreover as per the department, vehicles which are fitted with ‘AIS140-certified vehicle tracking’ and an emergency button will provide a safe environment for passengers and will ensure that road safety measures are followed. Accordingly a national vehicle tracking portal has been developed by the BSNL which will allow RTOs to check and ensure that all vehicles meet these standards. Further there have been several cases where passengers have been harassed by cab drivers to have safety checks in place to prevent such incidents from occurring.
